Ryan Thompson for SC State House of Representatives (District 106)


Ryan Thompson was born and raised in Horry County and is a proud product of South Carolina public schooling. He will graduate from the College of Charleston in May with a degree in Political Science. He has served the Horry County community by raising awareness of social justice issues and has organized marches in the area. He hopes to enter a career of public service to give back to the great state, people, and community who have invested so much in him. He believes no one is too young to make their voice heard or to be a positive force in their communities, and hopes his candidacy will push more youth to get involved with politics.

Thompson says the greatest goal with his campaign is “To make South Carolina a place teachers want to be again. We currently have the largest shortage of teachers in history and they are leaving the profession in droves. As a product of public education, I can say without a doubt that teachers serve the most important role in our state by developing our children. It’s time we invest in them!”
